about

A cemetery so old that the names on the graves have eroded into nothing and no one remembers the dead is razed to make room for a retirement home for folks who've also been forgotten. Ambience and slapstick combine as an absurd cast of characters inhabits and haunts the home.Noel Freibert currently resides in Baltimore, MD. He is the editor of WEIRD Magazine and was a member of the influential comics group Closed Caption Comics. His work has been shown internationally and is featured in the book collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Baltimore Museum of Art.

Editorial Reviews

These pages highlight the hallucinatory quality of Freibert's storytelling, and seemingly innocuous things like flowers become increasingly horrifying as they shed maggots and bloom to reveal skeletons with a penchant for torture." - Oliver Sava, The A.V. Club " Old Ground 's strangeness is obvious from the start. Its depths are not. But Freibert rewards people willing to do the digging." - Greg Hunter, The Comics Journal "Amorphous, inky black shapes that coagulate, coalesce, dissemble, and reconstitute themselves at both will and random are the primary visual motifs Freibert employs in this bizarre, humorous, at times even touching tale of gentrification looming down upon a haunted graveyard." - Ryan Carey, Daily Grindhouse "Freibert's curious, lively pen gives this gruesomely bleak and funny ghost story a savage bite." - Publishers Weekly "What's so special about comics? If someone asked me that, I'd point directly to Old Ground by Noel Freibert." - Sam Ombiri, Comics Workbook, 14 February 2018"
